WHIT­SUN­DAY GOLF

WHIT­SUN­DAY golfers played a team com­pe­ti­tion in tan­dem with a stroke com­pe­ti­tion last Sun­day with keen rivalry be­tween the two teams of 12 play­ers each.

Com­peti­tors were at times ham­pered by the strong blus­tery breezes, par­tic­u­larly on holes 8, 9, 13 and 16 where di­rec­tion was not easy to hold. Un­pre­dictable greens again made putting a trial for some.

A grade was won by Kym Hill on nett 71, ahead of run­ner-up Scott Wardroper on 75 while the best gross score came from Wayne Temby.

In B grade Dean Kercher fin­ished on top with 68, ahead of Brad Ham­mond on 72 and Ge­orge Me­harry had the best gross score.

Linda Wardroper con­tin­ued her win­ning form with a 60 in C grade, well clear of run­ner-up Pauline Red­path on 66.

The best gross score came from Wilf Her­weg.

Long­est drives for the day were Ge­off Har­ri­son (A grade), Mark Win­ter (B grade) and Ti­ina Rand­mae (ladies).

Near­est-the-pins in A/B grade were Dean Kercher on hole 2, Wayne Temby on 9 and 13 and Mark Ni­col on 16.

In C grade the only near­est- the-pin was Reg Kercher on hole 16 while in the ladies Linda Wardroper was clos­est on 13 and 16.

The con­cur­rent team com­pe­ti­tion, the Pres­i­dent’s Team ver­sus the Cap­tain’s Team, re­sulted in a win for the Pres­i­dent’s with a to­tal nett score of 954 de­feat­ing the Cap­tain’s score of 973.

Next Sun­day will be the Oc­to­ber Monthly Medal stroke com­pe­ti­tion with tee off at 7.30am.
